Production of the “The Polocrosse Story” Documentary was given a sensational start at the Hall 40th Anniversary Masters Carnival weekend in rural ACT.

Perfect weather conditions and great competition were matched only by the hospitality of the Hall Polocrosse Club and a group of competitors from as far afield as Darwin in the NT.

The Hall 40th Masters attracted many of the living legends of Polocrosse over the weekend.

Production continued at The Australian Polocrosse Junior Classic and Ladies Silver Stirrup at Albury in NSW.

We took our cameras south once again to shoot nearly 200 Juniors from around Australia in the thick of a three day coaching clinic. The weekend was then dedicated to a massive interstate comp, local club carnival and the inaugural Ladies Silver Stirrup event.
